Peel + Stick Subway Tiles

I shan’t lie —

our canned ham counter top re-do was a real morale boost!

I couldn’t wait to see how swell those groovy, new black counter tops

would look with the white subway tiles we’d chosen for our back splash . . .

. . . so we didn’t wait.

Fast forward to this afternoon.

Behind those crazy scribbles (?), there’s G.O., installing our peel + stick tiles:

Yes, it looks like he didn’t want his photo taken (sorry!),

+ I’m pretty sure he was swearing like a sailor at this point.

Turns out those tiles were insanely difficult to install!

Think contact paper, in hell.

 But they look pretty fan-tastic, don’t they?

Perhaps it was worth it.

NOW I can’t wait to see our sink + our new faucet back in place!

Stay tuned!

    What a Difference! That GO is quite handy. Your canned ham looks delicious.

      Thanks ever so! Yes, I am lucky to have G.O. I often wonder what we’d have done if we’d have met when we were a lot younger. Our ham has exceeded my expectations so far. It was so nasty when we first saw it. Fun!

    Yes, the tiles look great, and I can’t imagine any other treatment. Worth all the blood, sweat & tears. Now, go and kill a box of wine! Not a little bottle….a BOX!

    HA, Dolores! Funny thing is, I would pay someone an arm + a leg if they could install these tiles in our ham’s shower! Crazy!
